Rishama, thank you for reaching out to us. We very much appreciate your desire to help those in need in Nigeria. Unlike a relief and development agency, Compassion International is a non-profit, child development agency that works with existing church-based organizations. The funds that we receive are donated from sponsors for individual children in Compassion-assisted projects to provide for their educational, health and nutritional needs. Because our work is in partnership with the local church, we can only locate in developing countries where the Evangelical churches have building facilities and enjoy the freedom to minister in their communities. 

Compassion is not currently working in Nigeria, nor do we have plans to expand there in the near future. Regrettably, we do not have access to additional funds to help with outside ministries nor can we recommend any specific organizations that might. We want to thank you for the love and concern that you have for those who are in need in your community, and we pray that God will bless your efforts to minister to them.
